Not Enough Titan.
age 13+


an action packed sequel lacks in plot line. lots of action that is fun, but intense times, gets old. the good actors such as Liam Nelson suffer from the bad script. a couple bloody fights but most of the fights are just intense without blood. no noticeable harsh language, or sexual things.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (27):

Unlike the bombastic previous movie, WRATH OF THE TITANS is rather bland, with much less at stake and fewer conflicts between gods and men. The movie is filled with one digital creature after another -- the action and 3-D effects are fairly lazy -- and by the time we get to the big climax, the thrill is gone.

Subsequently, the human characters have perhaps even less personality than the monsters. Their interactions seem to consist mostly of explaining the plot to one another, and there's very little character growth or depth; Perseus' big revelation is that he gains strength from his son (i.e., he would rather protect his son than let him get hurt), which isn't much of a stretch. A kiss at the end of the movie is almost totally gratuitous and feels misplaced. Even the most skilled actors in the cast mainly look like they're struggling to stay awake.
